The regulations state:- “You must do all that is reasonably practicable
to prevent anyone falling”. All persons managing, planning, supervising or conducting Work at Height activities must be competent to do so.

Your Log Book

All successful trainees receive an IPAF Log Book on completion of an Operators course, which will enable them to record their relevant experience. This could shorten the renewal process for experienced personnel.

Keep Training Up to Date

The IPAF Operator and Demonstrator cards are valid for 5 years, after which all card holders will need to attend a refresher course. All MEWP users should keep up to date with current legislation and equipment changes.
